Europa

I just saw a yellow Europa in the employee lot where I work. Damn! That thing isn't even as tall as my thigh!!! They look slick in person, though.

Before today, I only knew the Europa as the El Camino of GT2!

That's too bad. Yellow & green choppers would have been a sight to see!

I know. I'd expect a yellow chopper with green stripes down the sides and a Lotus emblem just above the gatling gun, :hehehe:

The back end reminds me of those ridiculous flares on the backs of cadillacs.

Very good car though... Very.. ummm.... Origninal

Did my first TSD rally, over 25 years ago, as navigator in a Europa twin-cam. Stress , I can tell you, comes from trying to read route instructions while lying on one's back at high speeds in bad weather. :shocked:
